Baba Ganoush's recent activity

  • He started with a Miranda camera.  That was my very first film camera.  I still have it.
  • Apparently you didn't get the memo from the ACLU, which takes a different — and I am sure much more lawyerly and legally reliable — position  when it comes to photography in public places.  From ...
  • Of the ones I checked, the pictures you say are not in focus were shot wide open and the depth of field on them is extremely shallow. Consequently, the eyes may be in focus even if the nose of the...

  • Replied in Too old?
    @boxerman: You are absolutely correct about flying international business class.  If one can afford it, do it!  My wife and I always fly business class because it makes the first couple of days of ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    White Tern: G8V1000765
  • Absolutely gorgeous shots, and thank you for the detailed commentary about your gear and setup, which I found extremely helpful. One thing I'm curious to know is whether you encountered any issues ...
  • I recommend that you go back and review the video clip, as I did after I read your post since I didn't recall him saying what you claimed he did.  What he appears to say is that Olympus doesn't ...
  • The lens of the Sony RX10 iv is quite amazing, on a par with some of my favorite Nikon DSLR and Sony ILC lenses.  The RX10 iv is the Swiss army knife of fixed lens cameras.  It is often a good ...
  • Replied in Tripod?
    You caught me!  I was being modest.  LOL.  My technique is actually pretty good and I'm perhaps even steadier now than when I shot film.  Old guys rock!
  • Replied in Tripod?
    Thom Hogan has discussed this very point a number of times on his blog.  He also recommends that you turn off VR if you are shooting handheld with a shutter speed faster than around 1/1000 s or ...
  • The DL fixed lens cameras offered a range of choices. On one day you could  take one pair of them to suit your photographic needs for the day, the next day a different pair of them for a different ...
  • So many of us do precisely this:  we buy ILCs and then go out in the field with multiple cameras, each one having a different lens.  We treat our ILCs like cameras with fixed lenses.  This is what ...
  • And last month Canon, the leader in the industry, officially discontinued its last film camera, the EOS IV.   How long do you think it will be before Nikon stops making the F6?  How many of such ...
  • Buying a new D850 now, as great a camera as it is, would be like buying a Betamax recorder in the 1990s instead of a VHS machine.
  • Like most everyone else, Hogan has his own biases.  For many purposes, he prefers a big, heavy camera; he says so in his article.  In nearly every circumstance I prefer a lighter, medium-size ...
  • Aug 23rd makes sense. But when will it be in stock at the major retailers? There's the rub. Will there be a long delay as for the D850? Or, as some are speculating, has Nikon been squirreling...

  • +1 I see what you are referring to.  I did mistake them for thin clouds, but now that you mention it they look like uniformly or nearly uniformly spaced rows or even rings with slight steps in ...
  • Perhaps I'm being ultra dense and unobservant, or maybe it's my monitor, but could you please be more specific and point out  what it is in the picture you posted that bothers you? Although I ...
  • Congratulations on being the 748th person to make the same remark.  Of course, one might say that if you didn't like the OP's post, you could have ignored it by not commenting.  Quite simple.    < ...
  • Replied in Cynical view
    Selling the kit lens might not void the warranty, but it might make it harder for you to sell your camera on the second-hand market in the future unless you have kept the kit lens.  Some buyers of ...
